He has led significant turnarounds; taken companies public, successfully sold companies and raised substantial private equity in one of the worst markets in 25 years (Q2 2001).
Jim’s early career was at Lotus Development where he served as the General Manager of the Internet Division and a member of the Executive Committee at the time of the sale to IBM. After that Jim led four consecutive turnarounds for investors: IntraLinks, Gartner, Prodigy, and MataMatrix. All resulted in excellent outcomes for investors, such as Silver Lake, Kleiner Perkins, Integral Capital, Rho Capital, among others. He then joined Great Hill Partners as the Operating Partner working with 7 portfolio companies on their boards of directors and as an advisor to the CEOs, and in one case, as interim CEO.
